Mars scientists tap ancient river deltas and hot springs as promising
targets for 2020 rover.

The announced possible sites for the Mars 2020 rover are indeed interesting.
However, I think an important site was left out, Noctis Labyrinthus. Since
the Viking missions it has been known that Noctis frequently displays low
lying fogs or clouds. Since this is a low latitude and low altitude site it
is possible these low lying fogs could contact the ground during the times
the temperatures and pressures are in the range to allow liquid water.
